More than 4,500 people were admitted to hospital for a possible mobility scooter-related injury between 2011–12 and 2015–16, including 121 cases involving a pedestrian who was injured in a collision with a mobility scooter. Compared with a decade earlier, fall injuries most likely from a mobility scooter have increased for older Australians aged 60 and over—from about 200 to about 500 each year. Over the 10 years from 2006–07 to 2015–16, a total of 69 people aged 60 and over died from a mobility scooter-related incident.
